just picked up my 2012 ford fiesta yesterday...really nice car.
drives nicely, very silent and fuel consumption is decent as well.
only got 96 hp, but thats enough for it (unlike the 60 hp it comes as basic model with).
sadly with the winter tires i only have ugly steelies...in the summer with its original tires it will look much better
Sadly that's the case with most of today's "small cars". I tend to look at that category now & think to myself.. if only such & such were available a generation or two smaller, it would have been awesome! (and then I go perusing fleabay & autotrader for low mileage favorites from the 90's, lol)
That's true, there is the Mazda2 etc, but when you get to that range they tend to be pretty stripped of options.. since they're considered econoboxes. Or that's the case here anyways. Other countries always get better versions of nearly everything it seems though. (namely "Europe" and Japanland)
Im not saying it wouldn't be. But to say he doesn't know what he's talking about is a bit harsh. Some of what he said can turn out pretty expensive. Like i said a few times, 10k? I doubt it. But shit can end up pretty expensive.
Somebody who truly has no clue wouldn't even know about big 3 or 0awg at all(Big 3? Whats that, maybe it means i need a 3000w peak amp, oh yeah).
Or know that you do need extra batteries for a several thousand watt install(My car has a battery, that should be fine).
Or know about sound deadening(Sound deadening? Huh, why wouldn't i want everyone outside the car to be able to hear my music with me)
i had to run < 3 feet of 0 gauge wiring and it cost me $20. take into consideration waste, runs back and fourth (my battery is in the trunk, i imagine he has a battery or two back there to power it). this can add up quickly in itself. the big 3 is 0 gauge wire, which is pricy.
tell me powerful amps that are efficient arent expensive? tell me quality components arent expensive?
what do you think he spent it all on? beer for the install? he only needs to budget 1k for that.
Possibly paid someone else to do part/all of it who ripped him off a beaut. Seen an enclosure on eBay for sale with a 12" sub and two speakers in the same box carpeted in pink. Apparently cost the owner £450 just for the box as it was done by a "professional". Whereas it looks to me like it would only cost about £100 tops to do.
